[CF-metadata] Trac forwarding to mailing list

Hi All,

An extra bit of info on this.  The trac and mailman lists are indeed
independent.  They are synchronized by hand.  As moderator of the
cf-metadata mailman list I keep a list of new subscriptions and removals
from the list and every now and then I forward that list to folks at
PCMDI.  So when someone subscribes to cf-metatdata they are eventually also
subscribed to the trac mail list, but there can be considerable lag in this
process.  At some point the plan is that the cf-metadata mailman list or
something to replace it will be implemented on the PCMDI end and that will
remove the need to keep two independent lists in synch.
